Michael Hordern stars as Jeeves with Richard Briers as Bertie in a BBC Radio full-cast dramatization. Just when Bertie thinks that all's right with the world, there's young Bingo Little, who's in love for the umpteenth time and needs Bertie to put in a good word for him with his uncle; Aunt Agatha, who forces Bertie to get engaged to the formidable Honoria Glossop; and friction in the Wooster home over a red cummerbund, purple socks and some snazzy old Etonian spats.

Enjoyable (so really 3.5 stars) but I understand the series gets better as the two main characters are more developed. ( )

Lovely series of short stories. Bertie Wooster, Jeeves, Bingo Little - great characters... ( )
  cbinstead | Oct 10, 2021 |
One of Wodehouse's best. Given my current knowledge of the canon, I'd say it's in his top five books. Come for the laughs, stay for the metaphors! ( )

One of the best Jeeves novels. ( )

This is the second installment in the Jeeves series. In this volume Bertie is serving primarily as agony aunt to Bingo Little, who falls in love with a new girl every week and enlists Bertie’s aid in winning her affections. Various hijinks invariably ensue. Aunt Agatha also comes in at the beginning to terrorize Bertie, and his cousins Claude and Eustace do their bit to liven up his life in the most inconvenient way possible. Through it all, of course, the unflappable Jeeves pulls young Bertie out of the soup every time.

This was exactly what I needed to read at the moment. Because this is a Bingo-heavy volume, the stories could feel a bit repetitive, but I laughed out loud at least once per chapter, and the whole book was thoroughly enjoyable. Of course, I always picture Jeeves and Wooster as Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie, which really makes it even more fun. ( )
